About Me

Carlisle, Pennsylvania
I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

CDD Daily Post

Good morning everyone!! I am here with you today to share a very simple yet elegant card and tag combo I whipped up.  I love being able to make things like this in mass quantities.

First I cut out two black scalloped mats using the die from Fancy Frame die set.  Then I cut out two pieces of watercolor paper using the stitched rectangle die that comes with that set as well. I embossed a deer that I thought was very simple yet pretty on it's own.  I did pretty much the same process for the card and the tag as far as putting it all together.  The sentiments and mistletoe on the card came from the newly released Tis' The Season stamp set.  

To give the tag some strength I cut out four of the tag toppers from the Pocket Pieces Hi die set in black as well as one in the gold & black pattern.  I glued 2 black and the gold one together to adhere to the tag.  Using the last black one I adhered it to the back to finish it off nicely.  
** I would like to mention that I cut out another white scalloped rectangle die to adhere to the back of the tag if someone would like to write on it.  However, I forgot to take a picture of it to show you.**

I finished the combo off with some CDD Couture Sequins and walah, I was done!!

I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy card/tag combo.

Have a great day!

Happy Crafting!
